Leopard wannabe by fediaFedia Leopard wannabe by fediaFedia
Switched back to XP for some time, mostly because of wonderful customization possibilities :)

This Desktop is featuring a totally new level of XP to Leopard customization I recently discovered. I didn't even know it's possible to make Explorer look almost exactly like finder and include pimped explorer backgrounds like this one here ([link]) I'll submit a tutorial on how to customize Finder like this soon (This time there will be just a application data file, so no need to change many settings manually). I also customized the Leopard windowblinds theme adding actually perfect shadows from this screenshot: [link] and minor changes in styler toolbar.
Thanks to sala91 for the screenshots :)

Comments are welcome!

PS This crazy colorful mac os like wallpaper (which is quite effective for keeping a good mood) is from Desktoptopia.

I know that this is Windows. I said how did you make your "About this mac" window look like that. Also, may I ask which theme you are using for your Windows?

It's a custom app. And I have no idea what theme i used here, this screenshot is more than a year old.

OMG I actually thought that was a Mac until I saw the font ... like 2 mins after staring at it. Great job.

I really cannot wait for your tutorial and am really glad you're only gonna provide just an application data file instead of us having to change many settings manually. Ive always wanted to change my XP look but am too afraid to do so cos I might screw things up. I've seen your body of work and I am really impressed. You really do know your stuff. I willl give it a go when you're ready with the tutorial.

Thank You.

Relatively. Incredible problems with compatibility, and 99.9% of Finder programs don't work. Only objectbar really, and that doesn't cover explorer.exe, and screws with the Breadcrumbs.

it looks almost exactly like it, just change the open applications arrow to a dot and change the calender then it'll be perfect. :D

In fact I did change the hard drive name, notice the font differences. But it's a coincidence that I'm using the same Western Digital Sata 250GB storage device :P
